Original Warner Brothers trailer for the screen adaptation of John Steinbeck's famous novel that featured the film acting debut of James Dean. Like Cain with Abel, a black sheep competes with his brother for his father's love--with tragic results. With a great cast that includes Julie Harris, Burl Ives, Raymond Massey, and Jo Van Fleet. Big flashing titles and bold-voiced announcer in style of the period. In color.
